This is so cool. 45 degrees and it's supposed to stay warm for at least the next five days. Spring! Melting snow revealing all of the dogs' doings for a whole winter. Spring! The chickadees have changed their song. The back porch is full of water instead of ice. We can wear mud boots instead of snow boots. Though we still have a couple feet of snow out there. I don't think it'll last long with these temps.
My honey has some time off and it's so good to have him home for awhile. I sure appreciate him. He cares so much and asks for so little. He took the youngest two ice fishing yesterday. They caught a lot of ice. (bad joke) They also caught one little crappie. Dd3's first fish. Not enough to eat, but they all had fun.
I took the oldest two to an awards banquet at the Elks Club. We met a family that was just great. Kept us laughing all night.
Well, I started some broccoli, tomatoes and peppers two weeks ago. I know it's early, but I just have to do something. My peppers haven't come up. I don't know why. New seed, kept moist, maybe it wasn't warm enough? I'm still waiting.
I've been trying to spin with a drop spindle and I think I'm ready for a wheel. Not that I've gotten that good, I just can't spin with a spindle. The yarn is all different thicknesses. I think I want to learn to do this, though. I don't need another pastime, but I think it could be a lot of fun.
I need to get off of here and do something constructive. I have some sewing to finish and taxes to finish. Also, I need to get our farmer's market plans organized and figure what else I still need to get. These are, for the most part, enjoyable things. I am blessed to be able to persue the things that God has given me an interest in. (The goats are coming.)
Thanks for stopping to read. Have a glorious day.
